Terps at Heels

You have gotta be kidding me, read any number of other conversations that I have been in on this board, I don't complain about refs, ever. I was raised to be a good loser instead of a poor sport. Yet another baseless "fact" thrown out by a Carolina fan, what's new.

The fact is.... you brought up officials and thats what I said, how is that baseless? I might add... I was raised and raised my son as well, to be a good sport not a good loser.

Glad we didn't overlook Maryland. Time to go into Cameron and take what's rightfully ours!

So you were taught, and taught your son to make excuses for when you lose or fail? Or not to be a gracious loser?

And you said I was bitching about the refs which I was not, just pointing out the fact that Carolina gets more than their fair share of calls, which every Tar Heel fan will deny.

Glad to get past them. The game went as it should. A dominant team jumping to a double digit lead from the jump and then coasting against a truly inferior team.

This is how number one seed looks against inferior competition at the end of a season.

Refreshing.

I said a good sport, never heard the term good loser. A good sport is definied for you below.

good sport

someone who can accept a loss in a competition or can accept being the butt of a joke.

I don't want to speak for Munch, but I think he was trying to point out a lot of unc fans on this board like to blame the refs for unc losing a game. Maybe not you in particular but there are a lot of unc fans on here that do. Here are a few examples.

Panthers8192: there were a potpourri of insane calls that went in Dook's favor, I'm simply highlighting what may have been the most egregious.

Tarheelpride: No Plumbee blatantly pushed Zeller on that rebound tip in. If anything, a foul needed, and should have, been called.

And on that air ball attempt, that ball, and Kelly, was untouched, yet Duke got the ball back.

All missed calls.

Carolinarolls: the comeback was short and furious as well as aided by some, how should I say, inoportune whiffs by the zebras. Then, the miracle shot for a one point victory.

Carolinarolls: They had the game in hand, were clearly the better team and after getting a few bad calls seemed to give up.

While i think there was some shady officiating in that UNC Duke game it wouldn't matter if we could hit Free throws at home.

it would not matter if we did not redirect an airball off the backboard for 2 either, or that we decided to switch on that screen and not get a guy in KOKO-Zero's face maybe forcing him to drive. It would not have mattered if Kendall did not lob that long lazy bounce pass when we did not need to be pushing.

The calls are just as important as all these factors in the loss and if KOKO's shot had rimmed out there would have been talk about calls coming from the dookers, because there were some that could be complained about. There always are.

The point is that you can blame he refs, everyone can and everyone has an argument, but only to a point because to a point the refs are a necessary evil that nobody can COMPLETELY blame a loss on.

Unless its Julius Peppers tipped it in a home game against the Sowgurlz when the refs blew that game completely and gave them a second try.. closer in.

I hate Dallas worse than the Yankees btw, but not more than dook, chiefly because of kay.

ETA: and btw, bilas is a dookie for you dooknoobs

You can't blame the refs because there were calls missed both ways, nobody's perfect. The shot clock violation that wasn't called at the end of the first half, the walk by Barnes before he committed the charge, and the no call on Barnes when he pushed off on Curry and hit the jumper. We can go back and forth so even bringing the refs up at all is stupid and a waste of time. Like you said look at the lazy pass by Marshall, the going under the screen instead of switching off, not hitting your free throws or not going to Zeller the 2nd half when he dominated the 1st half. Those are what lost the game it had nothing to do with the refs so put it to bed.

There were calls missed on both sides so please stop with the shady officiating, Duke was called for more fouls and more turnovers.:rolleyes:
